Marcus Angel – Milwaukee

“Intuitive set that takes you on a creative journey through a variety of eras and genres that’s guaranteed to keep the party entertained and jumping.”

Born and raised in the urban landscapes of Milwaukee, Marcus Angel’s musical influences ranged from 70’s funk, 80’s Top 40, 90’s Hip Hop, House, and Alternative Rock! Immersed in the live music scene as a young man, Marcus Angel understood the hard work, discipline, and showmanship that came with being a high end performer. The transition from live music to a DJ began in his early twenties where he produced club mixes for a variety of venues in the 2000s. Though excelling in that area of music, Marcus took a break and re-entered the scene a handful of years later, but now as a live bar and nightclub DJ.

Since then, Marcus has made noise in dozens of Cities and States in the U.S. Though night clubs and bars are his typical evenings, he has an extensive resume in corporate, and private events performing at a variety of parties hosted by NFL players, Milwaukee Bucks, house name organizations, and has opened for marquee EDM artists.

In Milwaukee, WI, Marcus Angel’s home base, no venue is unfamiliar with his delicate and intuitive sets that blend a variety of musical genres, to form an evening of energy, excitement, and dance that everyone is sure to enjoy! Not only does his music set standards, but his attention to detail, work ethic, and dedications to his residencies is unparalleled.

“I take my job very seriously. I don’t take for granted the opportunities I have to perform in front of an audience, and embrace the responsibility I have to the Club and my dance floor on any given night. I’m blessed and fortunate to be able to express myself using a cornucopias amount of music I have lived though. With that experience I’m able to deliver a set that appropriately fits the vibe and personality of the venue, while being explosively entertaining and unique for the dance floor.”  Give a listen HERE.

SIR JET Joel Evan Tye for 2017


Singer Joel Evan Tye aka Sir JET.

The mysterious and alluring gender-bending Sir JET aka Joel Evan Tye is a popstar like no other. With his super-hero body and love for skin tight costumes and anime, he is what has been referred to as “Nick Lachey meets Ziggy Stardust.” The online article “The Boy Who Talked Like a Girl,” is the story of JET’s childhood struggle with gender anxiety that lead him to become an agoraphobic mute for almost a decade to only rediscover his voice again at age 20 and become the man you see today.

JET’s mission in life is to help people who struggle with their identity and to encourage them to find their true selves by going within like he did. In addition to being referred to as the “Madonna Crotch” by Patti Stanger when he appeared on BRAVO’s last season of Millionaire Matchmaker, JET is also a heavily sought after model, including appearing on the boxes of LASC’s first line of underwear, and modeling for Mike Ruiz’s Pretty Masculine series a total of four times.

About 5 years ago, he did an EP, a collection of songs with themes based on concepts from his book I’m Enough: How to Live Life Like a Popstar and Find Your True Self in the Process. You can get his highly popular and dance-able “Shout-out to the Lonely” on iTunes. Watch the video on YouTube.


He explores many soul searching topics on his YouTube channel. Happiness; Depressions issues, Finding joy; Mending a broken heart, etc.

“I am a role-model for youth who are in need of a male celebrity who embodies the masculine and feminine energies they wish to express themselves. The idea is that the struggle we have with equality in our society started when somewhere along the road of life we were taught to feel unequal. I wish to help people see that the path to equality starts from within, coming to terms with the male and female energies we all possess.


He will ONLY  be  doing a meet  and  greet  at  Six Flags –  he will perform at 1:30 AM  @  CHARLIES,  the Official  After  Party.

(3726 N Broadway St, Chicago, IL 60613)

Out in the Park 2013 Concert with Eli Lieb, Jess Godwin and Isaiah Grass

There is something for EVERYONE,
at OUT IN THE PARK 2013! 

NEW  this year, 3 mini concerts plus awesome impersonators from Milwaukee!

ELI LIEB was just nominated by OUT Magazine in their Third Annual 100 Most Eligible Bachelors”  – and he placed in the top 5!

Eli’s has been uploading videos to YouTube for over 2 years now, and is almost at 10,000,000  views!

Spring-boarding his musical career during his 10 years living in New
York City with early musical roots in the East Village, Lieb took the
NYC songwriting scene by storm. After his first performance at Sidewalk
Café he was immediately swooped into meetings with producers, label
execs and collaborators of the highest caliber. After a year or so
exploring the big-labels, Eli put on the brakes and retreated to his
hometown of Fairfield, Iowa. It was in this rural refuge where Eli was
able to write one of this year’s most exciting club-beat driven albums
from his own musical instincts. 

In a pop musical climate dominated by performers that are auditioned, packaged and produced for the public’s easy consumption, Eli Lieb has self-produced his debut album, titled simply Eli Lieb.  (Released Oct 2012).The collection of 10 original songs resonates with honest and touching sentiments within cinematic melodies, delivered in the spirit of uncompromising integrity. Appealing to fans of Robyn and James Blake, Eli Lieb has created something emotional and empowering. If all goes well, his new album will be available in time for OUT (IN THE PARK 2013, and he will have copies available for purchase and autographing!    ELI  ON FACEBOOK.

Honest, unassuming, and passionate, Jess Godwin possesses one of the
most dynamic voices both in and beyond the Chicago music scene. Combine
the music of Alicia Keys, Sara Bareilles, Norah Jones, and Stevie
Wonder, and you get the unique sound of this energetic redhead. Her
soul-bearing lyrics will touch your heart, and her music will make you
tap your feet and sing along at the same time.

Born in Atlanta, Godwin moved around a lot as a child – 5 states and
10 different schools to be exact! Eventually, Jess and her family
finally settled in Chicago. She has been a proud resident of the Windy
City for the past 14 years.

She has released four EPs, each one demonstrating her tremendous talent and wide-ranging musical influences: To the Heart of It, Quiet the Room (produced by Jan Smith, vocal coach to Usher, Justin Bieber, The Band Perry), Klutz, and her most recent self titled EP released in November. Godwin’s single, Katy’s Side, was featured on Keeping up with the Kardashians this summer. JESS ON FACEBOOK.

Song Writer whom is quickly gaining recognition in the music industry as

most prestigious industry insiders in the modeling industry.
